Thor Fiber Mini SDI Fiber Extender Kits are designed to increase the range of digital SD-SDI to 3G-SDI video signals over single mode or multimode fiber optic cable. SDI is normally carried over coax cable on BNC connectors, however, the maximum cable distance is limited to around 100 meters. Thor SDI extenders increase this distance to more than 80 miles by using lasers to send the data over fiber cable. Standard TX/RX kit F-M1SDI-3G-TX/RX with ST/PC connectors support single mode fiber up to 20Km or 2000 feet over multimode fiber.
Cabled (coax-to-fiber) throw-down converter is the most compact, rugged, and portable converter boxes. Super-easy to use, supports SMPTE 424M, 292M, and 259M as well as ASI and MADI audio. Its wide operating range from 5Mbps to 3.0Gbps, supports most professional digital serial communications. Full error-free pathological pattern operation is fully compatible with professional fiber video interfaces.
Single channel 3G-SDI fiber links are the smallest throw down units that are suitable for a wide range of applications wherever SDI signal distribtuion is necessary. Common uses include mounting on broadcasting cameras to simplify cable distribution. Another common application is for high end security systems. The F-MicroSDI platform is ideal for security applications where the RS-485 serial data channel can be used to control pan, tilt, and zoom controllers at the camera mount. This also simplifies cabling. Thor Fiber optic SDI transmitters and receivers use locking type ST/PC fiber connectors and BNC video cables to ensure that any cable is never accidentally pulled out of the device once the equipment is installed.
